England’s world record-breaking 481 run inning in ODI proved too much for Australia at Trent bridge as the former defeated the latter with a huge margin of 242 runs. The two sides will play a total of 5 matches of which England has won 3.

Match heroes were Alex Hales and Jonny Bairstow who scored 147 and 139 runs respectively, taking their side to a huge total.

England defeated Australia in the 37th over of the second innings. Australia could score just 239 runs.

The previous record was also held by England when it had scored 444 for the loss of three wickets against Pakistan. This had happened in 2016 and it was also at Trent Bridge where England had set the previous record total.
